The post Resource Access for the 21st Century (RA21) Corporate Pilot Report Published appeared first on Copyright Clearance Center.

]]>
November 6, 2018 – Danvers, Mass. – The International Association of Scientific, Technical, and Medical Publishers (STM) and the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) have released their RA21 Corporate Pilot Report, co-funded by Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation. The report identifies best practices for adopting a federated identity approach to streamline the user experience for access to subscribed content outside institutional internet protocol (IP) domains.

CCC, along with publishers, libraries, and other interested parties, have been working together since 2016 toward improved user access to subscribed content across a range of content platforms and devices. The corporate pilot, which began in early 2017, included a survey of Pharma Documentation Ring (P-D-R) companies and confirmed the readiness of those companies for a federated identity management system. The five P-D-R companies that participated in the corporate pilot are: AbbVie, BASF, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Novartis, and Roche – alongside four publisher participants – ACS, Elsevier, Springer Nature, and Wiley.

The three key goals of the corporate pilot were improved user login experience at the publisher sites, provision for granular usage statistics reporting, and the ability to easily set up and maintain Single Sign-On with multiple publishers. The RA21 corporate pilot successfully exceeded each goal. Next, the pilot will move into its post-project phase of identifying potential parties to operate any necessary centralized infrastructure to support the RA21 user experience.

“We were proud to co-fund this pilot from beginning to end as a demonstration of our commitment to industry initiatives and improving resource access,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC. “We look forward to our continued work with RA21 as it starts preparing for its post-project phase and potentially the creation of a central discovery service.”

“Publishers, researchers, and libraries have relied on IP addresses to authorize content access for many years,” said Babis Marmanis, Executive Vice President and CTO, CCC. “In today’s environment, these groups require more effective solutions to facilitate a seamless, intuitive, and consistent user experience. The RA21 pilot is the first step in reaching this goal.”

“Perhaps RA21’s biggest achievement so far is bringing together all interested parties under one banner to enable cross-industry collaboration focused on solving a critical industry issue for the benefit of all,” said Jo McShea, VP and Lead Analyst, Outsell, Inc. “RA21 is now at the cusp of realizing its ambitions – assuming publisher and institutional buy-in – having met its original stated requirements.”

“The pharma industry as a whole has recognized the need to enable a seamless user experience anytime, anywhere,” said Helen Malone, Director of the Information at GSK and President of the P-D-R. “I’m delighted that the PDR has been instrumental in driving the user requirements from the outset. I’m also thrilled that GSK, on behalf of the PDR, has co-sponsored this important Corporate Pilot to a successful outcome.”

Final best practice recommendations from RA21 are expected towards the end of 2018. Following that, the standard NISO process for recommended practices will be followed.

CCC will host a webinar about the RA21 Corporate Pilot results on November 15 at 10:30 EST/3:30 GMT.

DANVERS, Mass. – Oct. 25 – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, is sharing its recent webinar, “Guide to a Plan S Impact Assessment” during International Open Access Week, October 22-28, 2018.

Malavika Legge of the Biochemical Society and Portland Press and Tasha Mellins-Cohen of the Microbiology Society explored what Plan S could mean for the future of publication programs at researcher-supported societies.

“CCC is once again pleased to mark the occasion of International Open Access Week,” said Gretchen Gasser-Ellis, Vice President and Managing Director, CCC. “Over the past decade, International Open Access Week has fostered an important global conversation on the transition to open publishing.”

For 2018, the theme for International Open Access Week is ‘designing equitable foundations for open knowledge.’ The questions this theme raises are especially important at a time when national research funding organizations across Europe have launched Plan S to put pressure on Open Access publishing business models.

Plan S is one of the most important developments in OA publishing since the Finch Report. Announced in September, Plan S is an initiative of cOAlition S, a consortium launched by the European Research Council and major national research agencies and funders from 12 European countries.

CCC is monitoring Plan S and will work closely with all parties to address the accelerated transition to Open Access publishing. As business models and workflows evolve, CCC supports the collaboration of industry stakeholders by creating forums and tools that promote sustainable, transparent, and streamlined practices.

CCC recently hosted a “pop-up” webinar in early October featuring Open Access expert Rob Johnson, founder and director of the UK’s Research Consulting. Johnson offered a 30-minute crash course full of details and insights about Plan S.

CCC is an active partner in the information industry’s transition from subscription content to hybrid and pure Open Access content. The company has built RightsLink Author, the leading industry solution for managing Open Access and related publication charges. For years CCC has brought together key Open Access stakeholders from the author, publisher, institution, funding and vendor communities through roundtables, panel events, webinars, podcasts, and published pieces. CCC is a member of OASPA (Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association), ALPSP (Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers) and STM (International Association of STM Publishers).

October 5, 2018 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, hosted a “pop-up” webinar in advance of Frankfurt Book Fair – Get Smart About “Plan S” – featuring Open Access (OA) expert Rob Johnson, founder and director of the UK’s Research Consulting on Tuesday, 2 October 2018.

Johnson offered a 30-minute crash course full of details and insights about one of the most important developments in OA publishing since the Finch Report. Announced just weeks ago, “Plan S” is an initiative of 12 European national research funding organizations known as cOAlition S. It puts pressure on OA publishing business models by capping article fees, ending embargoes, and withdrawing support for “hybrid” OA journals.

“The key message that the coalition is giving is that after 1 January 2020, any results, any publications, funded by these bodies must be compliant open access journals or compliant open access platforms,” said Johnson. “That’s the headline principle, and that’s very soon, and that’s a really radical move.”

Johnson added, “I think it’s about diversifying and accelerating the launch of full OA journals and putting in place the underpinning workflows and the systems for this as one of the other things that’s in the plan is a greater emphasis on compliance and sanctions. So, there’s going to need to be better metadata, better reporting, and better guidance and education.”

CCC is monitoring “Plan S” and will work closely with all parties to address the acceleration of the transition to OA publishing. As the business models and workflows used in scholarly publishing have evolved over the last 10 years, CCC supports the collaboration of industry stakeholders by creating forums and tools that promote sustainable, transparent, and streamlined practices.

As part of its partnership with The Frankfurt Book Fair (10th- 14th October), CCC will host a live panel presentation on “Plan S” at the Fair featuring Tim Britton, Managing Director, Open Research Group at Springer Nature, Malavika Legge, Acting Director of Publishing, Portland Press/the Biochemical Society, and David Ross, Executive Director, Open Access, SAGE Publications.

Get Smart About “Plan S”
Thursday, 11 October, 09:00 – 09:30

Breakfast will be served.
